Ancient Egyptian house models

Tucked in a corner of the vast ancient Egyptian display at the Louvre we happened upon this elegant display of model buildings. By the time we came across these little models we had already put hours on our feet touring the magnificent collections and were looking for some rest, so I unfortunately only did a drive-by photo and didn’t examine the labels. I’ll have to see what I can find on the internet. Maybe there is an ancient train set that goes with them :-) After seeing example after example of their incredible creativity and skill, I wouldn’t put something as simple as a toy train beyond these master craftsmen.
